How to update your home in an instant

When you have a new idea for your home, it’s hard not to get carried away isn’t it? You want to make a change there and then, and don’t really want to wait to turn your interior vision into a reality. Once the domain of qualified tradesmen and practical dads alone, DIY really is now something that anyone can dabble in – it just takes a bit of preparation first.

Why wait to update when there’s many tasks around the home that you can tackle yourself?

Whether you’ve lived in your house for many years or you are about to move into somewhere new, you’ll undoubtedly want to make your mark as soon as possible so it feels like home. One element that can make a huge difference to every room is your internal doors. They’re a key feature, so a dated design or doors that show the wear and tear of family life – can bring down the whole room. It used to be one of those jobs best left to a trained joiner, and therefore could be a bit more involved and cost quite a bit when adding up all the doors you need.

But no longer!

If you want to spruce up your home in just a few hours, new internal doors are just the ticket. And with an EASY FIT door kit from JELD-WEN you’ll have everything you need to get going.

Whereas hanging a new door would typically mean ripping out the old frame and starting again, with EASY FIT there’s no need, you simply install it straight in the existing door opening. And what’s more, there’s no chiselling or planing to be done as all parts are supplied pre-machined ready to be secured in place. EASY FIT makes it, well, easy!

It doesn’t matter if you’re more a hapless harry rather than a Handy Andy, we promise these kits will walk you through the process and give you everything you need to hang a new door yourself. If you don’t believe us, just take a look at our handy step-by-step video.

Suitable for most standard sized door openings, there are two kit options available to suit opening widths of between 683-695mm and 759-771mm, both for an opening height of between 1988-1996mm.

You can be sure to find a door to fit your personal style too, with six different moulded door design options. Opt for the four or six panel doors for a traditional look, choose the appealing Cottage door kit for a touch of charm or, to let the light flow through from room to room, select one of the glazed door options.

Pre-painted in a crisp white finish, you’re new door will be good to go as soon as it’s hung – just don’t forget to pick up handles to suit your desired look. The difference it makes to how your whole space feels will probably make you wonder why you didn’t do it sooner.

So, rather than tracking down and paying for a tradesman to complete the task, why not open the door of opportunity and update your doors yourself this weekend?
